Veronika and Hugo Bohny Foundation

Veronika and Hugo Bohny Foundation


The Veronika and Hugo Bohny Foundation was established by the donors in 2008. The foundation’s aims include promoting entrepreneurship and innovation. A prosperous economy is reliant on innovation. And the breeding ground for innovation is found at universities.

During his professional career and as a venture capital pioneer in Switzerland, Hugo Bohny has supported many entrepreneurial initiatives, from initial financing to successfully establishing companies on the market. Understanding the importance of innovation and entrepreneurship, the foundation promotes both at their source, i.e. within universities. Together with Toolpoint, the foundation gives awards to outstanding bachelor theses that accelerate the transfer of knowledge and technology and thus promote innovation.
